### 講義概要

Econometric Analysis introduces the first-year master students to multiple regression methods for analyzing cross-section and panel data (microeconometrics). The objective of the course is for the students to learn how to conduct and how to critique empirical studies in economics and related fields. Accordingly, the emphasis of the course is on empirical applications. In order to learn how to analyze data, the students will be assigned homework every week in which they are required to analyze data from the real world using econometrics software (Stata).
